This one took a lot of time considering if to buy or not, knowing it has a lot of similarities compared the earlier FBI HRT. However buying was the right decision. The camo looks great and is pretty much unique so far. The A and B versions only differ in the GEN 3 color (Black/Ranger Green) and the rifle.


Could be Mark-Paul Gosselaar


My shirt had a ripped thread, not the only problem with this figure. Unusual for DAM

Somehow sewed together


Under Armour shirt


No underwear

Close ups of clothing, pockets, zipper


Elbow padding

Sleeves and gloves

They even did the tag

Pants, funtional pockets and knee pads

This zipper however is only for show




Belt

The loose ranger green clothing for comparison



Boots are from cloth and nicely executed. DAM didn’t release cloth boots on a regular basis lately

The plain vest






Plate provided for the front and back

Pouches

I only managed to put one mag in a pouch. It was too tight and two mags went back into the box


Fastmag holder. Has the perfect fit to be neither too tight nor too loose for the PMAG20


Radio pouch





NVG pouch

Pistol mag pouch

Grenade pouch, in which I added a loose M67 later

Utility pouch

Bladder without a bladder, only foam

Tube with details, but doesn’t open

Shotgun holder


Complete vest


Dump pouch

Medic pouch, can’t be opened


GP pouch


Lanyard


Harness





Tactical glasses

Helmet with cover and accessories

I didn’t apply the stickers. I think it only had one of these small stickers and I added a second one. Probably attach them later because they will lose their stickiness with time.

The plain Sentry helmet. This is a nice addition to this hobby with the cover overlapping the headphones.
They also applied a very stretchy helmet strap like E&S does atm. I don’t know if this is due to the real life counterpart, but it makes it easier to close the straps in combination with the headphones.




Cover


Cover comparison

NVG and mount


Detached. Just slide them off

One part missing,…

…hence only one bungy cord to attach. Ordered a spare one

The helmet mount

!



Be careful not to break anything when inserting the black base of the mount


Broken LED helmet light out of the box

Glued back on

Helmet cam

Manta strobe



Headset and radio








Remove the battery by unscrewing

Antenna

169

All put together

Removing this part makes it easier to attach the PTT to the vest

SUUNTO watch. I was confused with the time displayed first in the middle, but it’s the elevation. Time is down below: 08:56.

Strap can’t be opened

Ball pens

Sheers

Federal Bureau of Investigation
Department of Justice

Carabiner and descender

Patches

Flashbang with band

M67 loose and not from this set

Glock 17 is a bit pathetic tbh. Soldier Story is miles away and also E&S overtook here. Little detail and a not so crisp mold.






Mags have a silver painting at the bottom. Otherwise nothing new

Holster was too tight and I needed to file the inside in order to insert the pistol. It’s a mold from some years ago apparently.

I detached the holster more or less accidently and found some wording

M870


Loading port

Stock

EOTech


Sling

Ammo and holder

MK 18

This is kind of an intereristing mod. Almost every accessory of this rifle has been traded in for a another part. Grip, stock, muzzle, handguard etc.

Muzzle is not straight

Charging handle

No need to provide a spring again like the HRT?
Had to insert one of my spare ones


Magpul grip

MIAD Pat Pend

Taking off the rail. Sits a bit loose



Stock

ACOG





Back up sights




Light

Laser

Foregrip


Rails

Squid grip

Blast Diffuser

SUREFIRE LLC
Fountain Valley, CA
WARDEN
CAL:MULTI


Sling

Attach this way

Mags

Ranger plates can be taken off

PMAG 20

The caliber is upside down.

PMAG 30

I will take some more shots when the new NVG aririves. So far it’s without.




















I had quite some damaged and adjustment required items in this box set. Hope this was a one time thing. Otherwise I am very satisfied.

EDIT

Some more pictures with the recently arrived and intact NVG

Part list follows.

Someone knows what the GP pouch is for? A rope?


#3

another great review in the books.


#4

I agree, a very good review, that’s a lot of work. DAM seems unfazed by the process of all that detailing, tho it looks like they need to add on some more QC personnel. From an “it’s all good” point of view, they really pour it on, while covering some subjects. That said, at times I find myself thinking, “That’s a lot of FBI subjects popping up, these days…”.


#5

It seems like a case of two steps forwards, one step back with them recently. The base body QC has improved considerably since they retooled their range of bodies. The trade off has been paint apps on head sculpts and assembly of smaller pieces on weapons/equipment. Paint apps on head sculpts in particular are a sore point and the worst among the brands for QC issues. Things like paint splatter, entire missing sections of paint, etc.

Disappointing given they have raised prices about $20-30 across the range and most of what I see are things that are not the result of a defective design but the result of things that would only require a cursory glance to flag. That points to an overburdened production schedule and product getting rushed out the door. Charge $5 more and get it done properly as the industry as a whole has a terrible process (or none) in place for taking care of customers.


#6

Is this MK18 an 10.5 " barrel version? It has a 9" Troy TRX handguard.

Could someone help me out here identifying this MK18? There is nothing on the internet that helps me. Seems like the MK18 is just a widely spread term and could contain any barrel length and attachments?


#7

MK 18 is a US military designation for a specific spec AR configuration. That grew out of the Close Quarter Battle Receiver program (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Close_Quarters_Battle_Receiver). As for the FBI they seem to be using a mix of Colt M4’s with the Troy Alpha rail here as well as the Geissele MK4. They have had several different barrel lengths shown in later pics.


#8

I try to understand. So mine should be the MK18 mod 1, I think. Still unsure if 10.5" or 14.5" barrel
